Dragon Blossom by ldiehl Dragon Blossom by ldiehl

FACEBOOK | GOOGLE+ |BLOG | WEBSITE



Dragon Blossom is an image inspired by both the beautiful spring blossoms here in Virginia and the recent trip I took to San Francisco, where I attended the Cherry Blossom festival in Japantown.

It started with the idea of a little boy curled up reading in a blossoming cherry tree, only the tree is really a dragon and his reading material is an ancient scroll. Perhaps the dragon is somehow imprisoned as a tree and the boy keeps him company by reading to him?

(Note: I made up the "language" on the scroll, as I did not want to embarrass myself with a nonsensical cut and paste job of any real language.)
